They call for the immediate arrest and punishment of the perpetrators

The UNHCR has expressed extreme concern at the latest violent attack at the Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar, which took place in the morning on Friday.

The attack led to the death of at least six refugees and injured several others, including children.

“UNHCR is extremely concerned by another violent attack in the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh,” the UN refugee agency said in a statement on Friday evening.

“We once again urge the Bangladesh authorities to take immediate measures to improve the security in the refugee camps. This includes the arrest and prosecution in accordance with the law of those responsible for instigating and committing these violent attacks,” it added.

The attack took place at around 4am at Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama Al-Islamiyah Madrasa, located at Block H-52 of Camp 18 in Balukhali, Ukhiya.

Four people were killed immediately in the attack while others succumbed to their injuries at a local hospital, said Superintendent of Police (SP) Shihab Kaiser, chief of the Ukhiya-based unit of the Armed Police Battalion (APBn).

Initially, law enforcement officials thought it was a clash between two groups that resulted in the deaths.

Local Rohingyas allege that a terrorist group wanted to set up a training centre at the madrasa inside Camp No 18.
